About this blog: random thoughts, discoveries, ramblings. Much of this was originally composed as email to a local history mailing list, rather than being written specifically for publishing, so it's a little disjointed. I figured it was better to get it out to everyone else in rough form rather than not at all.

If you have a common interest in anything, or can add further to the information I've provided here, please contact me.

  Old house overshadowed by new development

04 January 2009, 2:35pm      

I was in the Aurora estate a couple of days ago to see what had changed. I drove right past an old homestead at first, thinking it had been demolished. When I turned around and looked more closely I realised it had melted into a sea of new houses.

New buildings only metres away from a historic homestead. Can you say OVERDEVELOPMENT!!!!
